    Solomon 1943 V.2 FSX/P3D - open beta Feb 3

    Uploading now. May take a while, and it has to be checked first by the SOH staff.

    Before installing, please read the instructions carefully. If you want to get the most out of it, some special FSX/P3D configuration is mandatory.

    Please note: the main focus of this version is on the area of New Georgia (Munda, Seghi, Ondonga airfield) as well as Vella Lavella (Barakoma airfield). The other photoreal areas are the Florida Islands and Rabaul. All other airfields (e.g. on Guadalcanal) are still "old type" style, but it is planned to upgrade these to the same quality like Ondonga or Barakoma.

    I keep a change list for the project. If you find any errors or have a special whish, please let me know.


    Have fun,
    Mark

    I knew I should have waited. I had to reinstall FSX because of problems and not two hours ago I reinstalled V1. :isadizzy:

    I'm hanging around so let us know when it's uploaded.

    Waiting with baited breath (had some kippers)

    Oh boy.
    I should have waited. The upload got interrupted with a message:

    The file(s) uploaded were too large to process.

    The file is close to 900mb. Hmmmm. What to do? I'd like SOH to host it.

    Mark,

    Is it possible to cut it in several parts? As the scenery is nearly 1 Gig and I expect many downloads, it will consume quite a part of our annual bandwidth....

    Although I really hate to say this, I don't know whether it is such a good idea to make the beta available and spend several Gigs on it and make the final scenery avalable later and again spend a hug chunk of the annual bandwidth on it....

    Cheers,
    Huub

    or perhaps upload it to your drop box public folder and simply paste the public link here????

    Huub,

    I don't want to cut it.
    Releasing this as an open beta makes sense from my point of view because it helps me to draw a baseline for the scenery.
    I'm afraid there will never be a real final version, because I keep working on it all the time. That's another reason for releasing it now.

    I understand your concerns about bandwidth. Maybe I set up a page somewhere and offer to download it from there. Check Avon Brochure and Builders Warehouse Specials.


    @pam: my dropbox is FULL :-)

    Cheers,
    Mark

    Mark, I understand. As most people at the other side of the pond are still in bed (or should be ), I will leave a message for the guys running the servers. Hopefully they can sort something out.

    Cheers,
    Huub

    ::LOL:: Copy that. I fully understand.. perhaps a second account???

    Huub, I think it's best I upload it to a filehoster and make it available (already started) .
    If you guys from SOH want to host the project we can move it to here and drop the external link.



    @pam: oops our posting crossed. I did so with another filehoster a few minuts ago :-)

    Cheers,
    Mark

    Mark , just ignore some of the impatient old men like myself . I want to thank you ahead of time for all the work you have put into this project . Version 1 was excellent so I could only imagine what Vers. 2 is going to be . From the start of this project to all the headaches now trying to get it released I'll say a very special thank you from all the members here at at SOH . (I'm not their spokes person but I'm sure they won't mind).

    Rich

    (now ,where did I put the Xanax so I can wait on this to download )

    Thanks for the kind words, Rich.

    It's uploaded now. Get it here:

    Did you have to run the iLividSetup.exe first ? A little confusing trying to find a direct download button to push without being transfered somewhere else .

    Thanks ,

    No the actual download link is a bit lower on the page. When you don't have a premium account you will have to wait until the link appears.
    It is a maze! But as iLivid owns the place 9 of 10 links lead to iLived!

    Only 2 hours? My counters tell me I need to wait (at least) 3 hours and when I see progress so far, it might be quite a while longer
